HAPPY 2nd BLOGIVERSARY TO ELLE SEES!


Two years ago I was unemployed, in a new city, and my computer decided to kick the bucket. I would spend all day on my teeny phone applying to jobs. As a reward, I would check out beauty/fashion/gossip blogs, and occasionally respond. One day I was glancing over a Spring Beauty post. I immediately sat up and started talking to the screen.

The products listed were outrageously priced. I knew one product didn't work, that there was a drugstore dupe for this other product, and that I already made my own version of another. I decided right then and there that I needed to start a blog to share what I knew.

And I've been smitten with blogging ever since.

This post is the beginning of a celebratory week wherein I thank YOU. Thank you for taking the 10 seconds of your day to read my blog. Thank you for leaving a comment, good or bad. Thank you for following me on this blog (and various forms of social media). Thank you for repinning, retweeting, and reposting. Thank you for all the emails, cards, notes, and presents.Thank you for the incredible support and friendship you've given me over the past two years. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything.

To celebrate, next week is Reader Request Week--a week dedicated to YOUR requests. Have a request you'd like to see? Leave a comment or email me.

Coming next week:
--Hair Style requests
--Q&A About Elle Sees
--Ask Elle: Your Beauty Questions Answered
--Elle's Hair Care Routine
--A Super Amazing Giveaway
--and more surprises

Have something you'd like to see  next week? Let me know below!!
